Lagniappe Lecture - "One Family's Story: Surviving the Holocaust" by Sally Rabinowitz

Saturday, October 27, 2012
2:00 pm presentation
The National WWII Museum, 945 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA

Sally Rabinowitz, granddaughter of Holocaust survivors, presents a story of survival, persistence and compassion. A YouTube sensation, Sally tells a story of mystery and intrigue that is not to be missed. Not your typical 17-year old girl, Sally spent several years uncovering the facts that led to her family's survival during the Nazi occupation of Germany. After receiving no response on the telephone, Sally made trips to German archives in the Frankfurt Jewish Museum as well as cemeteries where family members were buried. There, she uncovered a hero in the owner of Leica Camera.

A top customer and close friend of Ernst Leitz, head of the Leica Camera Company, Sally's grandfather, Mr. Ehrenfeld was saved by his friend Ernst Leitz.

Like Oskar Schindler, Leitz helped Jews find jobs outside Germany, securing immigration Visas and paying travel expenses for United States bound refugees.

Relating the events of Nazi Germany to racism that exists today, Sally will share her ideas of awareness and prevention of future persecution as well as overcoming obstacles.

This event is free and open to the public, but due to limited seating a reservation is required.  Please RSVP to 504-528-1944 x 412.
